About Rabison Shumba

Rabison Shumba is an international motivational speaker, life coach and author. His book, “The Greatness Manual” “Fountain of Inspiration volumes 1 and 2” are tools for personal and professional development. He has also published “Showers of Inspiration” which is a collection of his inspirational poetry. Together with 100 American Career Expert Authors, Rabison co-authored a book 101 Great Ways to Enhance your career, a book that has changed the lives of many across the globe.

Rabison has a personal vision of impacting the lives of children in marginalized communities by creating platforms for career counsel and guidance, information empowerment and capacity building through the Greatness Factory Trust, where he is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Rabison believes that the effect of the lack of adequate information empowerment platforms has the potential to cause learners leaving schools to never realize an equitable chance at bettering their circumstances and therefore contributing to the downward spiral into poverty. He is actively involved in the organization of career enhancement and guidance colloquiums to propel and inspire both young and mature professionals to greatness. His areas of expertise include strategy, leadership, personal and professional development.

Rabison has traveled to United States of America, England, China and across Africa on ministry, speaking and business missions. In 2011 he was selected as an Alumni of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) which saw him visit America for the Young African Leaders Forum. He was also voted number 12 in Top 100 Most Influential Young Persons under 40.

Born in 1973, Rabison is first born in a family of 14. Even though he came out best in his O Levels in 1990, he could not advance to Advanced Level due to lack of school fees and the need to take his siblings through school and college.  He proceeded to obtain a Diploma in Education (UZ) with a bias towards Computing. He is in possession of a Bachelor of Business Leadership Degree (BBL) and is now pursuing a Masters of Business Administration (MBA).

Rabison has a wealth of commercial experience in industries that span from Computing, Manufacturing, Mining and Telecommunications over a period spanning 19 years.
